Mixed Monday

I have mixed feelings about today (Monday).

It's a happy day here at my house because my husband is turning in a completed manuscript that he's been working on for a long time.

We were planning to celebrate by going out to dinner...BUT...he and Sarah are both sick. I'm keeping Sarah home from school today but John has to go in to the office (after three months of working from home) to wrap up lots of manuscript related stuff. That plus his cold-like symptoms make me doubt he'll feel much like celebrating five o'clock. I'm praying that Abbey and I stay well. We're the only ones who haven't succumbed to the stuff the rest of my family has been passing around. I don't have time to be sick.

I'm thankful for a new week. Last week was R-O-U-G-H in multiple ways. Today sorta feels like a clean slate. Especially since we have a fresh blanket of clean, white snow on the ground. I'm not even going to complain about snow in April (or the fact that my thermometer this morning read 16 degrees) since we're down on our snow totals by about 50% these days.

There's some other weighty stuff going on today too...stuff that I need to hold close and tight for now...but stuff that makes me feel like a yo-yo methodically moving up and down. I'm hoping it ends on a high note, but I know Who is with me regardless of where I land.

Peace out, peeps. Happy mixed Monday.

Hoping things turn up for you this week.

Curious about that completed manuscript? Does that mean another book is forthcoming?

Sorry about the sick ones, and yes I hope you don't catch what they've got.
I agree, it was so nice to see the snow this morning. Nice wet snow...the best kind for the farmers around here.
Have a great week!

Just said a prayer for peace on your mixed Monday.
(BTW, every time I click over here from Reader to comment, that pic of the tan-lined feet cracks me up. ha!)

Hope everyone feels better soon, and that even if you didn't get to celebrate last night, that you will get to this week! Congrats to John on a completed project! :)

I'm w/you on last week being a rough one! This week is still kind of a doozie for lots of reasons, but I'm hopeful it'll start looking up after reading your post. I'm praying you'll have a peaceful and joyful week!
